Description: Franco’s Restaurant and Pizzeria has been located since 1966 in downtown Naples at corso Arnaldo Lucci in front of the Napoli Centrale railway station, near to Naples-Salerno motorway’s exit; this motorway leads towards the Sorrento coast, taking to the city of Pompeii and other important places in the Campania region, and it connects to Naples-Rome and Naples-Bari motorways. The restaurant’s position is strategic for customers: It’s next to the railway station, in front of the Circumvesuviana railway station, near the parking and route of the public transport means both rural and urban. The airport of Capodichino is also easy to reach, it’s just 1,86 miles away, and it’s connected with public transport services leaving from neighbouring Piazza Garibaldi, which has all the connections typical of a road and railway junction, and taxi stands, too; moreover, this square is near and well-linked to the tourist harbour from which ferryboats leave for the islands and Sorrento coast, and one can easily get to the ocean terminal and its national and international connections. Next to us is also located the Piazza Garibaldi Metro Station. At Piazza Garibaldi and the surrounding area you can find several hotels of all rates, starting with the bigger ones. Our cuisine includes classic tastes from the Neapolitan gastronomic tradition, alongside international dishes. Besides, we offer and serve classical recipes from the XVIII to the XX centuries, from the artistocratic cuisine to the popular one. All this has been passed on thanks to the experience of four generations of cooks. Our restaurant offers a good customer service thanks to the professionalism and quality of our qualified personnel; we offer the opportunity of service at a continuos schedule and bookings for up to 80 people.

We spent all day at Pompeii and had only an hour to eat before our train back to Rome. Pizzeria Franco is just steps from the train station. I was skeptical we would get good pizza so close to the train station, but I didn't need to worry! It was absolutely delicious! Fast, friendly service--our waiter told us we were "very nice Anericans"--and the nicest bathroom in a restaurant that I have ever encountered in Italy (and I gave lived here over a year!). If you're short on time, but you want delicious, Naples-style pizza, go here!

Calm, clean restaurant offers very good authentic Italian food. Great value. An oasis from the heat of nearby Piazza Garibaldi.

“Incredible fresh and authentic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great good at great value. One of the best pizza's we have had in Italy. Returned two nights in a row and were really impressed by the service, quality ingredients and great value for money. Highly recommended for an authentic Napoleon experience.

“Authentic food, friendly service, great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We discovered ristorante franco on our first night in Naples and couldn't help but return the next day. The pizzas were unbelievably fresh and tasty, the buffalo mozzarella some of the best I've ever eaten. The staff were friendly and prompt in their service, especially the animated and friendly pizza chef who also served us personally. On our second visit, our coffees were also on the house! (I believe as we had returned a second time). Extremely reasonably priced. Definitely worth the visit, even if only in Naples for a short time! Will definitely return next time I'm in Naples

“Wonderful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for pizza when we stopped in Naples for the afternoon. We stumbled across Franco which is right around the corner from the train station. It was the BEST pizza we ever had! Also, the staff was super friendly and the wifi was great!
